Last weekend, I met up with my business school friend, Kate, who I haven't seen in years. When I asked her if she would be going to our next reunion, she said only if she was in a good place in her life inside and out. When I asked her to elaborate, she said that she would go only if she was feeling good about how she looked and what she was doing with her life.
I asked her if the reunion were next month, would she go—meaning is she happy with where she is RIGHT NOW? She said she…

My friend, Darren, hiked up 4,800 feet powered by his mind. His body followed. He said that he would do it. He saw in his mind that he could do it. And then he actually did it.
A few weeks ago, I went to Yosemite with a few friends to hike up Half Dome. There were six of us in the group. Four of us had hiked Half Dome in years past, so we didn't think twice about being able to do it. The four of us are marathon runners so we know how to push our body, manage our fuel, and gauge…

These past few weeks have thrown for me a loop. It’s not as though a major incident occurred but there were so many little things that took me off my usual track. My sleep, exercise, and mostly my eating habits were affected and I’m really paying for it now.
First, I’ve indulged a bit too much in sweets! I received a package from a co-worker in London that literally had about 30 candy bars. NO…..I didn’t eat them all! But I certainly had a good amount. My willpower has abandoned me…Read more

I consider juicing to be my fountain of youth. The juice of organic vegetables will not only speed up the process of detoxification, it will flood your body with enzymes, vitamins and minerals for quick absorption….and greatly benefit the immune system.

In my post, The Science of Prevention, I talked about the basic…Read more

“4 WEEKS TO YOUR BEST SELF”
“28 DAYS TO HEALTH”
“DETOX WITH YOUR DOCTOR”
You've probably seen ad headlines similar to the above. It seems that everyone is cleansing these days. I must admit that I was a bit skeptical at first because it seemed like my friends were either doing it for the wrong reasons ("I need to fit into a bathing suit for my trip to Hawaii") or they weren't really doing it right ("I'm doing the cleanse except that I'm drinking coffee, having a few…
